‘Grumpy Cat’ and Plaza Provide Twitter Comedy Gold

Lifetime’s holiday entree Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever premiered tonight to largely (and unsurprisingly) terrible reviews. More surprising is Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza’s reaction to the film on Twitter.

Plaza, known for her sardonic sense of humor, provides the voice of the titular cat – something that has bewildered me since the project was announced. Lifetime holiday movies always seemed like the kind of thing Plaza would skewer mercilessly. Somehow, my world felt askew with her participation in the project.

Tonight, the cosmic order was restored when Plaza unleashed an epic string of comedy on Twitter during the film’s premiere and embraced the film’s awfulness, helping the film to trend on Twitter.



Those are but a few highlights of what proved to be an incredibly amusing night on Twitter. Missed the movie, though. Sounds like I didn’t miss much. OR I missed the best thing ever.
